We took thousands of photos in 2018.
With each story, there were images that gave readers a visual glance at what was happening or who was the focus of the piece.
We took close-ups, action shots, portraits and wide angles, all in an effort to give 2018 a focal point.
We wish they could all be at the top of the list, but we'd need a bigger paper for that.
Here are the Western Star's top photos of 2018.
